Utah Special Session Ends
Gov. Gary Herbert has signed a series of bills bringing an end to the special legislative session.
The governor signed two major bills making changes to the laws governing medical cannabis and beer.
Lawmakers approved a change to allow grocery and convenience stores a one-week grace period to purchase and store 4% beer before it can be sold to customers as the cap is lifted from 3.2% beer on Nov. 1.
Additionally, legislators passed changes to the state’s medical cannabis bill.
